I would disagree. I believe we can have experiences with no reference to anything.

I find myself reacting to your use of absolutes like "everyone", "never" and "always". Maybe you acknowledge room for exceptions, but your choice of words excludes them.

Aren't you also observing a semiotic structure at a different time and it may have also changed (over millennia)?

Regarding item 77
What would be the negative consequences? One could say the same thing about rigpa, as it would make it difficult for a person to carry out their day-to-day responsibilities.

As Byron Katie would say, "can you be absolutely certain that is true?"

Isn't that all we have for our experience of ourselves?

That would include visuals? Anything that can be represented digitally?

Regarding item 66
Isn't it possible that there is a common physical external world, but there are 6 billion interpretations of that external world, providing the context for each person's inner world?

I believe that to say "we humans" doesn't recognize the bell curve of consciousness or the spiral dynamics/integral theory model.

Regarding item 30
This section is difficult for me to "grok", perhaps because I have insufficient data. Are you describing a model of a person that will be useful in describing the uplift process or experience? As you have said, any model is limited, and this limitation seems problematic. Perhaps it will become clear as I read more.

Regarding item 37
This is a rather complex concept - who is your audience?
Maturana and Varela define autopoiesis indirectly through how an
autopoietic machine/system operates. As a characteristic process
of self-production or homeostatic organization. It is the outcome
of a direct trial to characterize the organization that makes living
beings selfcontained unities and makes explicit the relationships
among its components that must remain invariant under a
continuous structural transformation and material processing [4].
